Daniella (page 18)

On Row 13 of the chart, there is a k2tog instruction missing. The last two sts of each repeat should be knitted together. The correct row 13 on the chart should read:
yfwd, k5, k2tog

 

Kaila (page 62)

The yarn amounts given for Kaila have been doubled. The required amount is half of that stated and should read as folls:

Sirdar Supersoft Aran, shade 892 Peeka Blue (long sleeved version), 2 (3, 3, 3, 4, 4) 100g balls; shade 890 lollipop (short sleeved version), 2 (2, 2, 2, 2, 3) 10g balls

 

Bobby (page 28)

There is an error with the needle size and 5mm needles should be used throughout

 

Perdy (crystals & ice, crochet book) (page 30)

There is a slight error on the front section of the bag and Rnd 10 should read:
Rnd 10: Join in colour A, 1 ch, 1 dc in same ch, 1 dc in ea of next 8 ch, *2 dc in next ch, 1 dc in ea of next 8 ch, rep from * to end, sl st to first dc, do not fasten off – 80 dc

 

Pretty Presence (crochet book) (page 30)

In the Pretty Presence pattern in the Christmas Crochet book there was a section missing on the instructions for the Flowers. There's an extra part for making the foundation loop. It should read

Flowers (make 3)
Make a foundation loop and 1ch

To create a foundation loop
When you create the foundation loop you need to do all of this:

Yoh twice, pull through to form loop, do not tighten as you will be working your first round into this foundation loop
Round 1: Make 1 chain stitch, then work 6dc into the foundation loop. Pull beginning end of yarn to tighten the foundation loop. Continue straight onto the next round, without making a join or turning chain.
Round 2: Work a dc2inc into each stitch of round 1.

Now proceed to the actual flower instructions (as shown in crochet book)
Rnd 1: 5dc into foundation loop. 5 sts
Rnd 2: Dc2inc five times. Ten sts
1sl st to finish.
Fasten off.

 

Eric and Ernie (page 56)
